Not in Florida, but close to the same climate here.  Not much of  an herb 
grower either, other than for the butterflies, but have tried  numerous other 
types of regular herbs without success....as Jim stated too  humid and hot. 
 Best results were seasonal growing as with  vegetables,  in spring and 
fall.  But Dill, Fennel, Mint, Mexican  Tarragon do really well year round.  
Rosemary does well, but only in raised  beds with very well drained soil here, 
due to our heavy rains.....but then  we have gumbo clay soils.  The thicker 
leaved Sages do well.  Bay  Laurel, and Black pepper (Piper nigrum) do very 
well.   Off the  beaten path herb types.....chaya and rootbeer plant do 
very well.  
Have them google an Herb society, or Horticultural extension  service in 
the area.  Those websites usually have a listing of what  does well in the 
zone 9
